Another Shore is a 1948 Ealing Studios comedy film/tragedy filmed in Ireland. It stars Robert Beatty as Gulliver Shields, an Irish customs official who dreams of living on a South Sea island; particularly Rarotonga. It is based on the book by Kenneth Reddin, an Irish judge.

Robert Beatty was a Canadian actor who had a major success playing an IRA man in Odd Man Out.


Gulliver leaves his job in Dublin to sit on a park bench waiting for an elderly person to faint that in his mind, he will rescue and they will reward him with an amount of money to get him to the South Seas. He meets Jennifer, a society playgirl who is fascinated by Gulliver's indifference to her. The day of destiny comes when he has to choose between his dreams and Jennifer.
